Oreilles de crisse

Oreilles de crisse (French pronunciation: ​[ɔʁɛj də kʁis]) is a traditional Quebec dish consisting of deep-fried smoked pork jowls. It is generally served in cabanes à sucre (sugar shacks) in spring time, traditionally topped with maple syrup.

Etymology[edit]

The word crisse is the Quebec French profanity word for "Christ". The name of the dish thus literally translates to "Christ's ears". Some say “crisse” is for the sound it makes while cooking.
